TFA: They even had their own freaking action figures: Here's a gladiator figurine from that era that still survives, though sadly someone misplaced all the accessories and the file card.

This one originally came with a little spring-loaded rocket launcher, but had no kung fu grip.
In the end, they cut all that stuff, because to most people, it would look as realistic as the Genie from Aladdin putting on a Goofy hat and a Hawaiian shirt. Hey, maybe when they do movies about Jersey Shore 1,500 years from now, no one will believe that shiat was real either.

Why did they use farking Aladdin for reference and not the Disney movie with actual grecoroman stuff that featured a hero who endorsed products and whose face was plastered across the land and even got figurines made in his likeness? It's even a plot point of the movie...

Klaus von Stauffenberg was a tall blond Prussian aristocrat with a distinguished military history and a noble family. He was portrayed in the movie by this:

A short dumpy actor with a squeaky voice who believes in space aliens. How sad is that.

Comedy was added to this originally serious documentary feature to lessen any accusations of over-the-top ridiculousness.
